Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Minds On Physics, Circular Motion and Gravitation Module, Mission CG5

This Minds On Physics mission includes 8 different circular motion scenarios to mathematically analyze. It's great practice. It's a great follow-up to the video.

Concept Builders, Forces and Free-Body Diagrams in Circles

Students love Concept Builders. Earn stars, dataways, and trophies while you master a concept. This one provides a great exercise in identifying free-body diagrams for objects moving in circles. 

Calculator Pad, Circular Motion and Gravitation Problem Set, Problems #8-15

The Calculator Pad is the go-to place on our website for solving Physics word problems. You will find problems, answers, and audio-guided solutions. You can't go wrong with that.

The Physics Classroom Tutorial, Circular and Satellite Motion Chapter, Lesson 2, Newton's Second Law - Revisited

This page from our Tutorial section is the written version of our video Tutorial. You will find additional problems with answers and solutions. Check it out.
